Carmelo Anthony Says His Poor Playing Might Be Due to His Fasting To Get Clarity in His Life!


 Kudos to Carmelo Anthony for trying to get some clarity in his life even if it's throwing off his game.  According to these folks over here Carmelo Anthony bad playing lately could be attribute in part to his 21 day fasting..... better known in the Christian community as the Daniel Fast.

Around this time of the year(start of a new year) the Daniel Fast is being practice  by all most every Christian church in  the country.   The Daniel Fast is a powerful spiritual experience that help followers of Jesus Christ to develop a more intimate relationship with their Lord, seek answers to prayer, and grow in the love and knowledge of the Savior.

Why Do People Think The Historically Black Church Don't/ Didn't Teach The Gospel?

Trip Lee, Eric Mason and Lecrae.
If you're reading this article most likely you're a "Black Christians" like my self, who grew up in a black church in a black community some where.  There's also a big ole chance you have either come from a "Black Pentecostal" background or you are still part of it. What ever the case might be you probable heard the lie the black church don't teach the gospel according to the Bible. You probable also heard this line that Martin Luther King Jr. was NO Christian and he sure was not a Baptist preacher because he didn't preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. But King instead preached  a social Gospel. Any way the  interview below is very enlightening and it mention  some of the challenges that exist between  historically black churches and the so call gospel-centered theology.

You Don't Have To Be A Republican To Be A Christian.

While growing up in the south I thought all Christians were Republicans that was until I realize the word "Republican" referred to politics...In my early teens I hadn't grasp the concepts of governments and political agendas, the correlation made perfect sense: Almost all the white kids in my school in the late 70's were Republicans and Christians so "Republican" must equal "Christian."

Even today people believe Christians have a specific political agenda, more specifically, a conservative Republican agenda
...I have tired to demonstrate Christianity isn't a political party on this blog many of times but many have bought into the stereotype... When the term "religious right" is used, everyone knows it's really Christians--and not Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, or other religious practitioners--that are being referenced. Even "evangelical" is used to connote "conservative Republican.

How in the hell the word evangelical--from the root "evangel" meaning "good news," and referring to Jesus' Great Commission to share his teachings and promises with the world--become political terminology? There's a long, tedious answer to how this stereotype developed... But that's far less important than considering: Why are we Christians letting ourselves be defined as a political machine?
I believe that's one reason Christ is a turn-off to the world and the lost is because of this group... A perceived political agenda is keeping people from seeking Christ...There are plenty of Christians who feel one must have certain political leanings in order to be a good Christian....What is a good Christian? There's none!

The idea one must be a Republican... one must be a conservative... one must be pro-life without reservation... one must oppose gay rights completely were did these views come from? Sometimes these views come direct from the pulpit.
... let's consider what Jesus might have been interested in if He was walking among us today... He'd surely address poverty, calling for more social programs and international aid to feed the 15 million children worldwide that die from hunger each year... He'd reach out to prostitutes and drug addicts, and embrace people most of us are afraid to touch or even acknowledge... He'd give comfort to AIDS patients and to women who've had abortions... He would speak out against hate crimes... He'd support the preservation of his Father's creation (AKA the environment)

Some argue Jesus would be a liberal today, deeply concerned about righting social wrongs... Personally, I doubt Jesus would register with any political party... During His time on earth, His primary "agenda" wasn't feeding or healing--it was forgiveness... Above all else, He wanted everyone to know they could have a relationship with God... His last words to his disciples were to spread the good news. Our primary objective then, as Christians, is to share that love and forgiveness with everyone: welfare moms and A-list celebrities. Skid Row residents and billionaire tycoons...
Our faith does influence our politics, just as it influences every aspect of our lives. Who Would Jesus Vote For?,
Can You Be A Person Of Morals Without Religion?
